Cold Stone Creamery faces suit over lack of real pistachios in pistachio ice cream

Here’s a scoop from Long Island: A federal judge has ruled that a woman can sue an ice cream company after she found that her pistachio ice cream had no pistachios in it.

Jenna Marie Duncan of Farmingdale said that when she ordered ice cream from the Cold Stone Creamery in Levittown, her taste buds were tricked. Now, a lawsuit she filed could bring a delicious payout for ice cream lovers nationwide.

Duncan went home, looked up the ingredients and found that she was right, according to her civil suit: The ice cream's bright green color and pistachio flavor were entirely artificial. She then filed a class-action case against Cold Stone Creamery’s parent company, Kahala Franchising, accusing it of false advertising.

A federal judge recently determined that the case can move forward. And if a jury agrees with Duncan, an untold number of ice cream connoisseurs could be compensated for the icy imitations they ate in the past.

Pistachio is a difficult flavoring for anything. The nuts don't have that much flavor to begin with, that natural casing obscures that minimal flavor, and making pistachio extract is pointless (for a home chef; food conglomerates can deploy a variety of extraction techniques but it comes out with a chemical-like flavor). When you eat anything pistachio flavored, it's mostly almond and floral extracts that enhance/augment what little flavor pistachios have.

That said, this class action suit is silly and pointless. The only people who benefit in class action matters are the lawyers. And this is why people hate our system of justice.

It's the same as when a restaurant advertises desserts as 'home-made' when they are actually bought from a food-supplier, which supplies pies made in a commissary. Those are not 'home-made'. So many restaurants have opted to call them 'home-style' to avert any legal action of 'false advertising'.

"Home-made" is often illegal, because food meant for sale to the public has to be made in commercial kitchens in many cities/counties/states. Hence the term "house-made," which signifies it was made in the restaurant's kitchens.

As others have already mentioned, pistachio ice cream is actually almond flavored ice cream with green coloring (and usually whole roasted pistachio nuts). There is no such thing as pistachio flavored ice cream. What makes pistachio ice cream pistachio are the nuts that are in it. Otherwise it is just almond flavored ice cream.

However, that being said, almond flavored green colored ice cream is what people expect when they order pistachio ice cream. This may seem counter intuitive, but most people identify flavors, not by the actual flavor, but by the visual appearance of the food. Most people cannot identify correctly a fruit flavor with seeing the associated color that goes with the fruit.

Cold Stone Creamery used to be amazing. And by used to be I mean as a young boy who lived in Arizona at the time and went to the very first one in Tempe because that was THE place to go for ice cream. The ice cream was so good and the mix ins were quality ingredients. I won't even eat the stuff now as the quality has decreased to the point that I no longer get the nostalgia feels. It's better than some of the other chains, but that's not saying much. Every time I see one it's a reminder how greed ruins everything.

Pistachio is my favorite flavor for ice cream. It's a very popular flavor in Italy, and it's wonderful.

I've tried Haagen-Daz and Ben &Jerry's, both awful and have no pistachio flavor.

Real "gelato al pistacchio" is made with ground pistachios. The pistachios are toasted and it deepens the flavor. The most prized pistachios come from Sicily.

This is 100% pistachio paste and nothing else. Note the color. This is what Italian "gelatai" use.

A Cold Stone Creamery opened a block away from me sometime in the early 2000s. As ice cream is my main qualifier for Fat Whoredom, I was afraid I might find myself there on the daily. So I went in and asked to try two of their ice creams. I don't remember which. The clerk, and the manager, refused to let me buy any ice cream plain. "You have to get mix-ins," each insisted.

Well, I didn't want any mix-ins. As an ice cream aficionado, I wanted to taste the base product before adding anything to it. We went back and forth and back and forth and finally they let me have my plain Cold Stone. Neither flavor had any flavor. It was merely cold and sweet, and I don't recall liking the texture. So Cold Stone did not become the siren call I had feared. I've only eaten there twice, at someone else's insistence.

I'm glad a Haagen-Dazs store didn't open at that corner.

I don't mind mix-ins if it's already mixed in. I just don't want someone "chopping up" my ice cream while it melts on the board and all the texture is removed.

The person in the photo isn't even the one filing the suit. Talk about truth in advertising.

[quote]Erica Love Botmow was surprised to learn her pistachio ice cream contained no real pistachios but said she still liked the taste.

If ingredients are included when the ice cream is made, they are not mix-ins.

I beg your pardon, but nobody promised you a Rose garden.

Well, I would consider the cookie dough in Ben & Jerry's cookie dough ice cream to be a mix-in.

I think “mix-in” means something added at the time the ice cream is served, not included when it was manufactured.

R134 The plaintiff who filed the lawsuit is the woman in the photo - Jenna Marie Duncan. Not sure what you're talking about.

To be fair, the pistachios would probably be the only way to distinguish that "flavor" from any of the others.

No, the caption identifies the woman in the photo as someone else.

I hope they counter-sue.

This is also true of all the"truffle" flavoring you are eating. They're prohibitively expensive in real life.

Counter-sue for what ? For really having pistachios in their ice cream ?

The caption is a photo credit, and identifies the photographer.

Judgement for the plaintiff in the amount of 10,000 pistachios.

No, the photo credit is Samantha Max. If you click on the "I" in the bottom right of the photo, it displays a caption.

Did she have to buy another ice cream for the photo shoot? If so does she get twice the payout?

Sure enough, r148, thank you.

The unusual name impelled me to Google and I wish I hadn’t.

^that’s not her. She’s from California.

Figures the Datalounge Detective & Consumer Protection Agency would know all about ice cream and lunch box treats. And probably a lot about eating ass.

And R84 is not funny.
